“Always consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We eat here often for weekend lunches. The food is always consistently good and we are served with water, menus and drinks promptly even when they are very busy. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The only point we'd make is that wait staff are not always knowledgeable about the dishes they are serving; specifically whether a dish contains dairy products or not, which in our case is critical to our not becoming sick.
Otherwise all good; we recommend Manuka for good, casual fare and will continue being regular patrons.

“Great location and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Located smack in the middle of Victoria Road in Devonport it is the ideal place for a relaxed meal and people watching. The staff were very friendly and prompt even though the restaurant was packed. The food was also delicious and with large portions. Prices were acceptable given the neighbourhood.

“Fun People Watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

If you're not in the mood for the beach, Manuka has some outdoor sidewalk seating that is quite enjoyable. Prices are the same as everywhere in Devonport (expensive), and service is non existent, fairly typical among establishments in Aukland.
